As the Predator 2000 and the Westinghouse iGen2200 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Westinghouse iGen2200 compare to the Predator 2000.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1800 W, the Westinghouse iGen2200 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the Predator 2000. Moreover, compared to the 2000 starting watts of the Predator 2000, the Westinghouse iGen2200 and its starting wattage of 2200 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: At a 25% load, these 2 portable generators offer the same runtime on a full tank. Each of them will be able to deliver power for up to 12 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.1 gallon of gasoline per hour. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Westinghouse iGen2200 and <5% for the Predator 2000) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 52 dBA, the Westinghouse iGen2200 allows for a quieter operation than the 58 dBA of the Predator 2000. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.8" x W11.4" x H17.9", the Westinghouse iGen2200 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Predator 2000 and its L22.6" x W12.6" x H18.5".
  • Weight: With a weight of 46.3 lbs, the iGen2200 is slightly less heavy than the 2000 (which weighs 49 lbs).
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Westinghouse iGen2200 and the Predator 2000 both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the Westinghouse iGen2200 does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Westinghouse iGen2200's and the Predator 2000's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Predator 2000 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: The Predator 2000 benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Secure technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
